Chris Sutton Wins Kurne-Brussels-Kurne

Congrats to the Team Sky rider, who won the sprint finish in Kurne. The most interesting aspect of the race for me was Tom Boonen's decision to attack with 5 km to go. He managed to stay in front for only about 2 km. My guess is that Boonen knows his form isn't yet good enough to win a field sprint; so he took a flyer. Those two kilometers on the attack can only improve his form as the Spring Classics season continues.

As I watch more of the Dutch race feeds on Steephill.TV, I think I'm beginning to understand the language. At least, I often can make sense of what the commentators are talking about.
